Theory of games and statistical decisions by David Blackwell( Book )

65 editions published between 1954 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 1,120 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluating statistical procedures through decision and game theory, as first proposed by Neyman and Pearson and extended by Wald, is the goal of this problem-oriented text in mathematical statistics. First-year graduate students in statistics and other students with a background in statistical theory and advanced calculus will find a rigorous, thorough presentation of statistical decision theory treated as a special case of game theory. The work of Borel, von Neumann, and Morgenstern in game theory, of prime importance to decision theory, is covered in its relevant aspects: reduction of games

On games involving bluffing by Richard Bellman( Book )

2 editions published in 1950 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A class of two-person games possessing the following general characteristics are considered (a) At the beginning of the game, and at various stages of the game, a chance mechanism furnishes numbers xi and yi from the unit interval (0,1) to the two players, I and II respectively. I knows xi but not yi, II knows yi but not xi. (b) Each player pays a certain amount to start the game, regardless of his subsequent moves. (c) The game is a many-move game of the following type. I's initial move, is one of a fixed number of possible moves, which are known to II. However II does not know I's move. (d) After I has made the initial move, II has a choice of a finite number of moves, known to II, and so on. The initial maneouvering continues in this fashion for a fixed number of turns. The game continues in this way for a fixed number of phases, N, at the end of which there is a payoff to I of K and II receives - K. The problem of determining the best possible mode of play for each player in the usual sense of maximizing or minimizing the expectation is one that arises in many important applications of statistics and probability theory.

Exploration of the Upper Hot Creek Ranch Geothermal Resource, Nye County, Nevada( )

2 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Upper Hot Creek Ranch (UHCR) geothermal system had seen no significant exploration activity prior to initiation of this GRED III project. Geochemical geothermometers calculated from previously available but questionable quality analyses of the UHCR hot spring waters indicated possible subsurface temperatures of +320 oF. A complex Quaternary and Holocene faulting pattern associated with a six mile step over of the Hot Creek Range near the UHCR also indicated that this area was worthy of some exploration activity. Permitting activities began in Dec. 2004 for the temperature-gradient holes but took much longer than expected with all drilling permits finally being received in early August 2005. The drilling and geochemical sampling occurred in August 2005. Ten temperature gradient holes up to 500' deep were initially planned but higher than anticipated drilling and permitting costs within a fixed budget reduced the number of holes to five. Four of the five holes drilled to depths of 300 to 400' encountered temperatures close to the expected regional thermal background conditions. These four holes failed to find any evidence of a large thermal anomaly surrounding the UHCR hot springs. The fifth hole, located within a narrow part of Hot Creek Canyon, encountered a maximum temperature of 81 oF at a depth of 105' but had cooler temperatures at greater depth. Temperature data from this hole can not be extrapolated to greater depths. Any thermal anomaly associated with the UHCR geothermal system is apparently confined to the immediate vicinity of Hot Creek Canyon where challenges such as topography, a wilderness study area, and wetlands issues will make further exploration time consuming and costly. Ten water samples were collected for chemical analysis and interpretation. Analyses of three samples of the UHCR thermal give predicted subsurface temperatures ranging from 317 to 334 oF from the Na-K-Ca, silica (quartz), and Na-Li geothermometers. The fact that all three thermometers closely agree gives the predictions added credibility. Unfortunately, the final result of this exploration is that a moderate temperature geothermal resource has been clearly identified but it appears to be restricted to a relatively small area that would be difficult to develop
